able to roll the machine out of the crate by pushing
on the rear bumper. DO NOT STAND IN FRONT OF
THE MACHINE WHILE ROLLING OUT OF CRATE.
The NewRider™ 5000 is shipped without the front
bumper/spray head support attached. Align the
two holes in the bumper bracket with the two
holes in the frame. (The lifting lever/pedal should
be on the top side of the bumper and on the right
hand side as you face the machine).
Insert the two ½” x 3-1/3” long bolts in the holes
from the front. Place one flat washer, one lock
washer and one hex nut on each bolt and tighten.
Cut the tie that secures the lift lever lock spring to
the machine. Hook the bottom of the spring in the

the caster arm onto the spray head support tube
and tighten bolts.
The caster wheel may be adjusted to the left or
right so that the rear wheels will clear the striped
line when turning (Picture 2).
Slide the spray gun mounting bracket over the
upright on spray head support tube and tighten
bolt. Adjusting the spray gun mounting bracket up
or down will adjust the spray width (Picture 3).
Place the spray gun in the holder without the hose
attached and secure with the clamp (Picture 4).
The spray gun may have to be moved forward or
backward in the clamp so that there is
approximately 1/8” of space between the trigger
and the lifting bar. This should also leave enough
room to push the trigger lock sideways.
If the trigger lock will not push release the gun
clamp and slide gun forward or backward until you
can push the trigger lock. NOTE: To release trigger
lock push the lock in on the right side (inside) of the
gun.
Attach one end of the spray hose to the pump
outlet with a 3/4” wrench and the other end to the
spray gun. To secure the hose on the spray gun you
will need a 3/4” and a 9/16” wrench as it has a
swivel fitting.
Loop the additional hose over the hanger on the
left side of the spray tank. Make sure hose does
not contact the tire. Route the hose through the
snap link and around post at corner of left fender.
Always check the oil level in the engine before
starting (SAE 10W30).
Make sure the static chain is contacting the ground
(on bottom side of transaxle).

Fluid & Filter change
This transaxle is designed with an external filter for ease of maintenance. To ensure constant fluid quality levels and
longer life, an initial oil and filter change at 75-100 hours, then every 400 hours thereafter is recommended.
The following procedure can be performed with the transaxle installed in the vehicle, and the vehicle on level ground.
Apply the bypass valve and lock the vehicle parking brake.
1. Remove the three 1/4” filter guard screws and filter guard. Clean any loose debris from around the perimeter of the
filter. See filter and filter guard removal Page 15 of this manual.
2. Place an oil drain pan (12” or more diameter and 8 qt. capacity is optimal) beneath the oil filter. Remove the oil filter
from the transaxle.
3. After the oil has drained, wipe the filter base surface off and apply a film of new oil to the gasket of the new
replacement filter (Newstripe part number 10003778/Hydro-Gear part number 52114).
4. Install the new filter by hand, turn 3/4 to one full turn after the filter gasket contacts the filter base surface.
5. Re-install the filter guard with three 1/4”screws (Snug, do not over tighten).
6. Drain old oil filters of all free flowing oil prior to disposal. Place used oil in appropriate containers and deliver to an
approved recycling collection facility.
7. Remove the oil level check port plug from the transaxle prior to filling with oil. This will allow the transaxle to vent
during oil fill.
9. Fill with Mobil 1 Full Synthetic 15W50 Motor Oil ONLY through the reservoir bottle under the seat until
oil just appears at the bottom of the oil level check port. Install the oil level check port plug into transaxle. Snug, do not
over tighten.
10. Top off the reservoir with Mobil 1 Full Synthetic 15W50 Motor Oil ONLY to the “FULL COLD” mark
11. Proceed to the purge procedure.
12. Top off the reservoir with Mobil 1 Full Synthetic 15W50 Motor Oil ONLY to the “FULL COLD” mark.

Transaxle service and maintenance
External Maintenance
1. Check oil level in accordance with “Fluid Change Procedure,” See page 16 of this manual.
2. Inspect the vehicle drive belt, idler pulleys, and idler springs. Insure that no belt slippage can occur. Slippage can cause
low input speed to the transaxle.
3. Inspect the vehicle control linkage to the directional control arm on the transaxle. Also insure that the control arm is
securely fastened to the trunnion arm of the transaxle.
4. Inspect the bypass mechanism on the transaxle and the vehicle linkage to insure that both actuate and release fully.
Purging
Due to the effects air has on efficiency in hydrostatic drive applications, it is critical that it is purged from the system.
Air creates inefficiency because its compression and expansion rate is higher than that of the oil approved for use in
hydrostatic drive systems. These purge procedures should be implemented any time a hydrostatic system has been
opened to facilitate maintenance or the oil has been changed. The resulting symptoms in hydrostatic systems may be:
1. Noisy operation.
2. Lack of power or drive after short term operation.
3. High operation temperature and excessive expansion of oil. Before starting, make sure the transaxle is at the proper
oil level. If it is not, fill to the specifications outlined in this manual.
Purging Procedures
The following procedures are best performed with the vehicle drive wheels off the ground. Then repeated under normal
operating conditions. If this is not possible, then the procedure should be performed in an open area free of any objects
or bystanders.
1. Disengage the brake if activated.
2. With the bypass valve open (Transaxle release lever towards rear and over in slot) and the engine running, slowly
move the directional control in both forward and reverse directions (5 or 6 times).
3. With the bypass valve closed (Transaxle release lever in forward position) and the engine running, slowly move the
directional control in both forward and reverse directions (5 to 6 times). Check the oil level, and add oil as required after
stopping the engine.
4. It may be necessary to repeat Steps 2 and 3 until all the air is completely purged from the system. When the transaxle
operates at normal noise levels and moves smoothly forward and reverse at normal speeds, then the transaxle is
considered purged.
Please call us, if you have any questions regarding any of the above procedures.
